You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown: May 16-19


You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown performs at Edmonds Community College May 16-19, 2013, in the Black Box Theatre on campus —20000 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood.

Spend an evening with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, and, of course Snoopy.  These lovable Peanuts characters, created by Charles Schulz, will come to life in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, the delightful Tony award-winning Broadway musical revival —with book, music, and lyrics by Clark Gesner (and additional dialogue, music and lyrics by Michael Mayer and Andrew Lippa). 

This musical is full of witty and charming cartoon-like moments.  Remember Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and his nefariously evil kite and Linus with his blanket?  It also features memorable songs such as “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “My New Philosophy,” and “Happiness”.

 “The Peanuts comic strip is full of discovery, imagination, optimism and hope," said director Jennifer Matthews.  "Who better to champion hope in today’s uncertain world than the optimist Charlie Brown? This play takes us on a journey and shows us that despite his failure and misgivings Charlie Brown always rises above his calamity.  He is not just a boy in a yellow shirt; Charlie Brown represents the enduring human spirit in us all.”

This production, which is suitable for all ages, includes a cast of Edmonds CC students, staff, faculty, and local professionals.
